Eze Reacts to Wike’s Downright Boastful Assertions About 2027 Elections

… Describes His Mannerisms at this Trying Times as Ridiculous, insensitive, callous, careless, unfortunate and attempt to incite the angry and hungry Nigerians against Tinubu’s Administration.

 

“….Today, Nigerians are eating from the dustbin while in Lagos, Nigerians are being treated like animals while struggling for a hundred Naira loaf of bread and two tubers of yam but to Wike what matters most is how to rig the 2027 general elections. May God have pity on him…”

 

 

Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP) and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze says it smacks of ridicule and manifest insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians who have been reduced to the status of hunger-stricken refugees in their own land, for the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike to begin to talk about 2027 elections and how no one can challenge him in Rivers State at the polls when the administration under which he serves has thrown the country into the darkest period of economic woes in the annals of her history.

 

“It is ridiculous that while many Nigerians are dying in droves because of the hardship facing us as a nation, an opportunist like Chief Nyesom Wike the incumbent Minister of FCT in the Thanksgiving Service in honour of Senator Barinada Mpigi would be talking about 2027 general elections and how nobody will be in position to challenge him and his Group.”

 

In a report titled, “I Don’t Know Who Can Challenge Us In 2027” Wike highlighted that with the alliances his political camp has formed, the 2027 elections will be a walk in the park for them.

 

The minister spoke of his readiness for the 2027 elections during a thanksgiving service by Senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State on Sunday.

 

“With the forces we have I don’t know of anybody who can challenge us. I can tell you it is like tomorrow is 2027. For me it is still very far, I can’t wait. The two leadership of the party, APC is here, PDP is here; where can you find that leadership unity? Which state? It is only in Rivers that you can find that unity.

 

“This is the only state where the leading party will win for president, the opposition party will take national assembly in election that was done the same time, same minute and same hour. That is uncommon,” Wike said.

 

In a statement made available to the media, Chief Eze said with the confidence the FCT Minister spoke on how he intends to rig elections in 2027, it is either the former Governor no longer operates from Nigeria or must be operating either from the Moon or the Sun not to observe the level of protests all over the country or the Collapse of our Naira or the failure of our economy and the attendant hunger ravaging Nigerians. And all of these happened during a misplaced thanksgiving service by Senator Barry Mpigi who himself has no legacy of a tangible project to show for his wasted years in the Senate

 

Eze said given the reality on ground, Nigeria has become a living hell on Earth as Food, Cement, Fuel prices continue to hit the Roof. He said following the exorbitant cost of rice, garri, beans and other food items, Nigerians now go to bed each night hungry and these reality should concern any reasonable Nigerian who is part of the government of the day like Nyesom Wike – the FCT Minister.

 

As at the time Wike was making his outlandish utterances a liter of fuel was sold at N720, a bag of rice for N75,000, a basin of Ikwerre Garri N12,000 and N12,000 for a bag of cement.

 

It calls for concern that in situation of economic hardship such that we have fallen into, where 46 Professors and others in UNIABUJA, FUTminna according to ASUU died due to attendant hardship, valueless opportunists like Wike would be talking about elections without being mobbed.

 

Eze quoted the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Abuja zone of expressing deep sorrow on Monday over the loss of several of its members due to economic hardship, inadequate remuneration, and unfavorable working conditions prevailing in the country.

 

According to report from ASUU, at least 46 academics have passed away in universities within the Abuja zone, including the University of Abuja, Federal University of Technology Minna, Federal University Lafia, Nasarawa State University Nasarawa, and Ibrahim Babaginda University, Lapai.

 

The union highlighted the recent demise of Professor Johnson Oyero, an esteemed scholar in Fisheries at the Federal University of Technology, Minna, attributing his death to the lack of access to quality medical facilities.

 

In another development, Eze highlighted how Muhammad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto lamented the economic hardship in the country, saying Nigerians are angry and hungry.

 

The traditional ruler spoke at the 6th executive committee meeting of the northern traditonal rulers council (NTRC) which held in Kaduna state

 

“To make matters worse, we are faced with rising levels of poverty of most of our people; a lack of normal sources of livelihood for the common man to have even a good meal a day,” he said.

 

“I have said it so many times and at so many fora that, things are not okay in Nigeria and of course, things are not okay in the north.

 

“To me, this government is a continuation of the former government; it is the same party.

 

The Labour will soon go on a two day nationwide protest, the Petroleum sector with the Drivers threatening to go on strike with Nigerians dying in droves and our children are being withdrawn from School and a fellow who calls himself a leader for lack of what go do is here preaching to Nigerians with guts on how he intends to win the 2027 general elections thinking that Nigerians are fools.

 

Today, Nigerians are eating from the dustbin while in Lagos, Nigerians are being treated like animals while struggling for a hundred Naira loaf of bread and two tubers of yam but to Wike what matters most is how to rig the 2027 general elections. May God have pity on him!

 

In conclusion, Eze describes Wike’s Mannerisms at this trying times as ridiculous, insensitive, callous, careless, unfortunate and attempt to incite the angry and hungry Nigerians against Tinubu’s Administration.

 

While urging citizens to continue in prayers with hope that things will get better, Eze called on Nigerians to be wary of Wike as a common enemy who do not mean well for the country and her people.

Rivers Crisis: APC Chieftain, Eze Calls Tinubu To Protect Democratic Institutions.

…Cautions Wike to Desist from Inflammatory Comments, Inciting Rivers Self-acclaimed Lawmakers Against Governor Fubara …Expresses Thanks to Rivers State Elders, Traditional Rulers, Stakeholders, Youths for Teeming up to Retrieve the State from the Evil Claws of Dark Forces.

 

The Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP) and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to prevail on FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike to curtail the excesses of his 27 foot soldiers and former state lawmakers who, despite vacating their seats, are still parading themselves as members of the Rivers State House of Assembly in which guise they foment troubles in a bid to distract the Governor of the State, Siminialayi Fubara.

 

Reacting to the recent threat of impeachment against the Governor, issued by the congregation of former Lawmakers and Wike’s attack dogs, led by one Marthin Amaewhule, Eze said it is necessary at this point that President Tinubu calls Minister Wike to order to save the situation of a perceptible breakdown of democratic institutions by the former lawmakers who are taking orders and prohibitions from the Minister to whom they are directly answerable and who is working at cross-purposes

 

In a statement made available to the media, Chief Eze said it is weird for the self-acclaimed lawmakers to issue impeachment threats to the Governor when there exists no trace of any verifiable infraction committed by the later to warrant such infamous proclamation.

 

Describing their path as a deliberate invitation to anarchy, fueled by Mr. Wike – an arch enemy of the state, the APC Chief hinted that by the express provision of Section 109 of the Nigerian constitution, having deliberately vacated their seats, the former lawmakers have no business whatsoever legislating for the state anymore, stressing that every action taken and all laws and amendments to laws made since their exit from office amount to nullity and therefore have no force of law and do not deserve the respect and obedience of the people.

 

Eze commended former Governor, Dr. Peter Odili, for standing his ground in defence of democracy despite the pressure mounted on him by Wike and his emissaries to veer off the path of justice in service of Minister’s parochial, self-serving interest.

 

Expressing confidence in the enormous benefit of Dr. Odili’s wealth of experience to the current administration, Eze urged Gov. Fubara to always consult widely on critical matters of state concern in order to arrive at best decisions suitable to address each peculiar challenge in his journey to transform the state from the horrible situation it left by the former administration of Wike.

 

The APC Chief urged Gov. Fubara to remain focused in delivering democratic dividends to Rivers people and pay no heed to the antics of detractors who are hellbent on frustrating his efforts of impacting the people with good governance.

 

Chief Eze expressed gratitude to Rivers elders, youths, women and stakeholders for their stance against the plot by Wike to conscript the state into personal estate with particular interest in the funds that accrue to the state on monthly basis from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) and other revenue sources within the state.
